Brew Potion [Item Creation]

You can create potions that contain spells.

Benefit: You can create a potion of any 3rd-level or lower spell that you know and that targets one or more creatures. Brewing a potion takes one day.

For example, an empowered Magic Missile deals 1.5? its normal damage (roll 1d4+1 and multiply the result by 1.5 for each missile).

An empowered spell uses up a spell slot two levels higher than the spell's actual level.




Enlarge Spell [Metamagic]

You can cast spells farther than normal.

Benefit: You can alter a spell with a range of close, medium or long to double the range of the spell. An enlarged spell uses up a spell slot one level higher than the spell's actual level.

Heighten Spell [General]

You can cast a spell as if it were a higher-level spell than it actually is.

Benefit: A heightened spell has a higher spell level than normal (up to a maximum of 9th level). Unlike other metamagic feats, Heighten Spell actually increases the effective level of the spell that it modifies. All effects dependent on spell level (such as saving throw DCs and ability to penetrate a lesser globe of invulnerability) are calculated according to the heightened level. The heightened spell is as difficult to prepare and cast as a spell of its effective level. For example, a cleric could prepare Hold Person as a 4th-level spell (instead of a 2nd-level spell) and it would in all ways be treated as 4th-level spell.




Improved Counterspell [General]

Benefit: When countering spells, you may use a spell of the same school that is one or more spell levels higher than the target spell.

For every five points of base attack bonus you have above +6, you may add one additional arrow to this attack, to a maximum of four arrows at a base attack bonus of +16. However, each arrow after the second adds a cumulative 2 penalty on the attack roll (for a total penalty of 6 on the third arrow and 8 on the fourth).

Damage reduction and other resistances apply separately against each arrow fired.

You can cast spells to maximum effect.

Saving throws and opposed rolls (such as the one you make when you cast Dispel Magic) are not affected, nor are spells without random variables. A maximized spells uses up a spell slot three levels higher than the spell's actual level.

Track [General]

You can identify different types of creatures (e.g. elementals) and the general direction in which they are traveling.

Benefit: Your ability to find tracks or follow them is dependent upon your rank, or the amount of skill points you have, in Survival. If your rank in Survival is greater than or equal to the creature's CR, you are able to see the direction and the creature type. Tracks of repeated creature types are not visible to you; for example, if there are two sets of human tracks, you see only one of them. You can identify a maximum of five creature or monster types.

Normal: Without this feat, you will not be able to tell the general direction of a creature, nor will you be able to identify its type.

Special: A ranger automatically has Track as a bonus feat.




Two-Weapon Defense [General]

Your two-weapon fighting style bolsters your defense as well as your offense.

Benefit: When wielding two weapons (not including natural weapons or unarmed strikes), you gain a +1 shield bonus to your AC.

When you are fighting defensively or using the total defense action, this shield bonus increases to +2.

Special: A fighter may select Two-Weapon Defense as one of his bonus feats.




Two-Weapon Fighting [General]

You can fight with a weapon in each hand. You can make one extra attack each round with the second weapon.

Benefit: Your penalties on attack rolls for fighting with two weapons is reduced. The penalty for your primary hand is reduced by 2 and the penalty for your offhand is reduced by 6.

Special: A 2nd-level ranger who has chosen the two-weapon combat style is treated as having Two-Weapon Fighting, even if he does not have the prerequisites for it, but only when he is wearing light or no armor.

A fighter may select Two-Weapon Fighting as one of his bonus feats.




Weapon Finesse [General]

You are especially skilled at using weapons that can benefit as much from Dexterity as from Strength.

Benefit: With a light weapon or rapier made for a creature of your size category, you may use your Dexterity modifier instead of your Strength modifier on attack rolls. If you carry a shield, its armor check penalty applies to your attack rolls.

Special: A fighter may select Weapon Finesse as one of her bonus feats.




Weapon Focus [General]

Choose one type of weapon, such as a greataxe. You can also choose unarmed strike or grapple (or ray, if you are a spellcaster) as your weapon for purposes of this feat. You are especially good at using this weapon. (If you have chosen ray, you are especially good with rays, such as the one produced by the Ray of Frost spell).

Benefit: You gain a +1 bonus on all attack rolls you make using the selected weapon.

Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a new type of weapon.

A fighter may select Weapon Focus as one of his bonus feats. He must have Weapon Focus with a weapon to gain the Weapon Specialization feat for that weapon.




Weapon Specialization [General]

Choose one type of weapon, such as a greataxe, for which you have already selected the Weapon Focus feat. You can also choose unarmed strike or grapple as your weapon for purposes of this feat. You deal extra damage when using this weapon.

Benefit: You gain a +2 bonus on all damage rolls you make using the selected weapon.

Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a new type of weapon.

A fighter may select Weapon Specialization as one of his bonus feats.




Whirlwind Attack [General]

You can strike nearby opponents in an amazing, spinning attack.

Benefit: When you use the full attack action, you can give up your regular attacks and instead make one melee attack at your full base attack bonus against each opponent within reach.

When you use the Whirlwind Attack feat, you also forfeit any bonus or extra attacks granted by other feats or abilities (such as the Cleave feat or the Haste spell).

Special: A fighter may select Whirlwind Attack as one of his bonus feats.




Widen Spell [Metamagic]

You can increase the area of your spells.

Benefit: You can alter a burst, emanation, line, or spread-shaped spell to increase its area. Any numeric measurements of the spell's area increase by 100%. For example, a Fireball spell (which normally produces a 20-ft.-radius spread) that is widened now fills a 40-ft.-radius spread. A widened spell uses up a spell slot three levels higher than the spell's actual level.

Spells that do not have an area of one of these four sorts are not affected by this feat.
